Open Educational Resources are immediately more accessible than your typical resources due to the elimination of cost barriers, but there are more barriers to access than cost, and there is more to “open” than licensing.

This hands-on workshop will take you through some basic, practical ways to create open resources that are equally open and accessible to people with learning and/or physical disabilities. We'll go through applications that most instructional faculty are familiar with—Word and PowerPoint—and we’ll go through an easy way to produce captions for your multimedia content in YouTube. We'll also discuss aspects of more accessible images, web content, and audiovisual materials. This workshop will take you through the benefits of accessible materials from a position of nondiscrimination and inclusion instead of legal compliance.

By the end of the workshop, attendees should be able to:
  • Create a resource that is more accessible to all people, regardless of ability, using a few common applications
  • Advocate for accessibility within any educational resource program by educating on the value of accessibility and inclusive design
